Use the Cross-Sections utility to make a News item that has been added to one section appear in one or more other sections. Make sure you are already logged in. Find the news that you wish to cross-post to another section. In the Utility Bar, click the "Cross-Sections" link. Figure 1 shows a screenshot of the Cross-Sections form.

The form displays a tree-view of the hierarchy of sections. To browse deeper into the tree, click the name of a section. This will reload the page with the tree opened to that section, exposing all of its subsections. If the name of a section is not a link, then the section does not have any subsections.

Once you have found the section that you want your news to be cross-posted to, check the radio button beside the section's name and click the "Add" button at the bottom of the page. (Note: If a section does not have a radio button beside its name, then it does not have the news tool enabled.) For our example, let's cross-post the news to the "Unidigm University" and "Current Students" sections. Figure 2 shows what we would see after doing this.

The list at the bottom of the page shows all sections that the news has been cross-posted to. To remove a cross-posting, click the "Delete" link in the appropriate row. The news would no longer be visible within that section. The "Visible" column shows you whether your news is visible within that section or not. For some sections, your news will be visible as soon as you cross-post it. For others, the Section Owner or a Tool Manager for the news tool for that section will have to authorize your cross-posting before it will be visible. When adding a cross-posting, you can tell if the news will be visible immediately if the name of the section in the section hierarchy appears in bold.

For more information about how cross-sections work and how one section is given automatic cross-posting privileges from another, see the Cross-Sections help documents.

For more information about managing news that has been cross-posted from other sections to your section, see the Managing Cross-Posted News from Other Sections help file.
